Does anyone else get irritated by having to wait in a queue for people to buy Lottery tickets and scratch cards?

It makes me want to follow them outside, where they'll inevitable fumble for change in their pockets & hurriedly scratch away to see LOSE, or whatever it states, and say to them, "Why waste your time & money loser? It's never going to happen for you. Just do the rest of us a favour next time & allow me get on my way back to my office where I'll actually 'Make It Happen' for myself!"

We wouldn't have done so well at the last Olympics if it wasn't for the Lottery, Tim. The money that goes into up and coming athletes and minority sports, as well as disabled sport, has really helped.

With our overpaid, underperforming footballers we need some talent elsewhere.

People could play it online, but it helps small retailers to have terminals because of the extra chocolate bars they sell with the tickets.

Our Olympic performances have been incredible. Maybe all Lottery players simply pay a tax when they buy the tickets so good causes receive even more.

But yes, make it all onlone and then Mr. Muppett can spend as much time and money on a short cut to the top as he likes, and he won't hold me up any more asking for Lucky XXXXing Dip or whatever it's bloody called.

Personal:
I run my business from a High Street office in the Georgian seaside market town of Lymington on the edge of the New Forest. I've lived there since the age of 11 apart from a 6-year spell in Walton on Thames, Surrey.. I love music, food, boats and sport [see interests below for specifics] Since the age of 18 I have worked exclusively on my own businesses; from plans to launch an 80-van mobile car valeting franchise, that were scuppered last minute due to a 3 month emergency hospital visit, to importing Nissan vans from Dublin, my career has been a lot of fun. I have started businesses in transport, music, automotive, sales, franchising, catering, development land, conveyancing, tax and of course…unavoidably and unsurprising to me I have ended up where I knew I would one day... marketing. I know James Coakes [at a distance] and have eaten a sandwich in his office located a sausage roll throws away from my own HQ.
Professional:
BUILD UNQUESTIONABLE CLIENT LOYALTY FOR YOUR B2B SERVICE BUSINESS AT THE UK’S ONLY REGULAR MARKETING BASED WORKSHOP Business is about standing out & not blending in Implanting your company’s offer into the minds of your intended buyers should be your no.1 priority. Encouraging people to talk about your business in the way you want them to isn’t easy, but it’s vital. It is possible though. All you need to do is decide what do you want to be known for & how do you want others to describe you. Next, create your USP [your Utterly Seductive Proposal] and forcefully rubber-stamp it across the entirety of all your marketing. Your Utterly Seductive Proposal is the all-conquering headline by which you wish to be known by. It powerfully and succinctly conveys why your ideal target client should do business with YOU over any of your competitors. I run events in the south of England where the entire focus is on creating your USP. http://www.myusp.biz/events
